“Finding Beauty: The role of lattice QCD in high energy physics”

Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong interactions, is a beautifully simple quantum field theory which describes an extraordinary range of complex phenomena. A tour of the main features of QCD is followed by an introduction to lattice field theory, a nonperturbative approach to quantifying QCD effects. I will discuss the current status of lattice QCD calculations with a focus on results that are essential for unlocking the discovery potential of high energy experiments at the precision frontier.
